Vendor Visit! Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting Mika Dimitrijevic and her husband Miki at their rambling 30 acre property on Dawson Rd. Mika has been at the Market for about 10 years but has always grown vegetables for her family. They immigrated from Serbia in the mid 70s and many of her favourite and most popular vegetables are grown with seeds she brought from Europe! While they are on a well, they have a seemingly unending supply of water and thus are able to water thoroughly despite the drier summer, resulting in some great crops. You’ll find Mika, Miki and one of their grandsons at the Market each Wednesday and Saturday as long as the season lasts. See the photo captions for more information! ... See MoreSee Less

Vendor Visit (we will be back next week with regular Tuesday Trivia!)
I visited Angela from Tarrymore Gardens a few weeks ago. She’s growing a huge plot on Tarrymore Farms land in South Gillies - she used to garden with Susan but now is managing it on her own with plenty of people helping her out (if you want to visit Angela during peak veggie season be prepared to work in exchange!). In winter, she’s at Lakehead, finishing her French degree this year and planning next year’s garden! Not bad for our youngest Market Gardener at 22!
She starts veggies in the greenhouse (we saw that when we toured Tarrymore Farms earlier this year) but is now growing tomatoes and eggplant in the small greenhouse. The bulk of her produce though is in the field of veggies.
You can find Angela at each outdoor Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays until the season ends. She also makes tomato jam and zucchini relish with Jenny from Tarrymore which will be for sale as long they have it.
Don’t forget we are back at the Dove Building tomorrow from 3:30. ... See MoreSee Less
